Namely, the cooperation between SuperUh and the Vinkovci music documentary festival DORF continues again this year on Iskon’s festival beach in Primošten in the period from August 4 to 6, after which screenings will move to Vinkovci from August 23 to 25. The festival is held under the auspices of the Croatian Audiovisual Center, the City of Vinkovci and Vukovar-Srijem County, and the partners of the festival are Žedno Uho and the Vinkovci City Museum.A total of 8 films will be presented to the audience in Primošten, while the 12th DORF opens with a screening of a 2017 film by a guest from Great Britain, Phil Cox, about the cult funk megastar Betty Davis called “Betty – They Say I’m Different”. German director Christine Franz’s documentary “Bunch of Kunst” from 2017 will have its Croatian premiere, which is a kind of chronicle of the author’s experience during her multi-year tour with the British music duo Sleaford Mods. The third in the series of works “Music is the Art of the Hour” directed by Igor Zupe deals with the most important albums of Slovenian music, while in this sequel he deals with the first album of the Slovenian music group Laibach. “Electric Dreams” is the second Croatian premiere of director Dušan Moravec, a two-time DORF winner. The story, told in the production of RTV Slovenia, tells how “Yugoslav Jean-Michael Jarre” paved the way for many musicians with albums and music until the end of the 70’s.The film “Invisible Hands” by Marina Gioti and Georges Salameh from Greece talks about the project of musician Alan Bishop, bassist and vocalist of the cult Sun City Girls. This poetic documentary about a musical journey to Cairo was screened in 2017 at the Berlinale. One of the most interesting documentaries shown at DORF, was on the program of this year’s festival. It is a film “Spit’n’split” written by Jerome Vanderwattyne.In the accompanying program, the organizers announce the presentation of the exclusive “Secrets of the History of DORF” powered by PechaKucha presentation which was promoted in Zagreb in early June in the Summer Garden Vintage industrial bar as part of 4 warm up programs.

Best hails ‘ruthless’ Schmidt

first_img “It’s ruthless, but that’s where you want to be. This is a ruthless level we’re playing at: we’re playing the best teams in the world, the best players in the world. “You go back to 12 months ago, you make one small error and you lose a game. “On Saturday we didn’t and that is ingrained in us now that you stick to the system. “You trust the guy to your right and the guy to your left, and ultimately we have systems and protocols in place that can win you games in tight situations.” Former Leinster boss Schmidt gritted his teeth through suspected appendicitis to stay on hand and direct operations against Australia, before heading off for medical tests at full-time. Doctors at the Aviva Stadium sent Schmidt to Dublin’s St Vincent’s Hospital, where his condition was confirmed and he underwent surgery to have his appendix removed. The ex-Clermont coach was recuperating on Sunday following the successful operation, the Irish Rugby Football Union (IRFU) confirmed. Ireland cemented their status as the number-three side in the world rankings on Saturday, backing up their 29-15 South Africa victory with another impressive result. Simon Zebo and Tommy Bowe claimed the tries for the hosts, with Johnny Sexton slotting 16 points from the tee. Australia outscored the home side three tries to two, with Nick Phipps claiming a brace and Bernard Foley also crossing. The resolve of Schmidt’s men mirrored the tenacity of the boss himself however, as Ireland fended off wave after wave of late attacks while the Kiwi head coach played down his illness. Centre Robbie Henshaw admitted he “didn’t notice” Schmidt was unwell in the build-up to Saturday’s autumn-closing Test. “Joe is an amazing coach and his attention to detail, as mentioned before, is unbelievable,” said Henshaw. “He gets you in the frame of mind where you have to know everything inside out. “It’s paying off, his work. He spots weaknesses in teams or where there is space in between teams. “He expects us to rise to the occasion. “We knew during the week it was going to be a physical game and that they were going to be ramped up. “We knew ourselves that we had to get one back on them from last year and we did that, thankfully. “He didn’t make so much of being unwell at all. I didn’t notice, he seemed pretty normal to me.” Hooker Best admitted Ireland may well have failed to close out Saturday’s 26-23 victory over Australia in previous campaigns. The Ulster front-rower conceded Ireland suffered “mental switch-offs” in a 32-15 defeat to Australia and the last-gasp 24-22 All Blacks loss in November 2013. The unwell head coach Schmidt delayed medical treatment to guide Ireland to their first autumn Test series clean sweep for eight years on Saturday, before being rushed to hospital to have his appendix removed. “The pleasing thing is that compared to where we were 12 months ago is that mentally, we stayed in,” said Best. “If you look at it 12 months ago we went mistake after mistake, mental switch-offs if you like, but this time round in a similar position, we didn’t. “But this year we stuck to our system, we came off the line, we hit and stuck, and we really put pressure on Australia. “Ultimately they were the ones under pressure at the end of the match because they were the ones who had to get points in some shape or form. “We put pressure on them, everyone stuck to their job and the big thing for us is that no one threw in the towel mentally. “There are a lot of great coaches out there, but Joe is certainly one of the best I’ve worked with. “He just expects a high level from you: and if you don’t toe the line and you don’t come up to his fairly tight standards then he finds someone else that will. Joe Schmidt’s “ruthless” selection policy has forced Ireland to shed mental weaknesses that were costing victories, according to Rory Best. Press Associationlast_img read more
